As a result of a policy statement issued by the Office of Management and budget (OMB), a requirement was mandated federal agencies and the DoD to look to the private sector to supply their needs. In compliance with this OMB policy, the Army selected food service as one area to convert from an in-house activity to a commercial/industrial type activity (CITA). As a result of this mandate, the Troop Support Agency tasked NLABS to write a Statement of Work to be included in the purchase document the Army uses when it contracts with commercial catering firms for food and food services. The broad objectives of this project were to provide a performance oriented Full Food Service Contract for Army Dining Facilities. The project includes a Statement of Work of Section C; an Inspection and Acceptance Plan with a table for calculating a reduction of payment to the contractor for nonperformance or unsatisfactory performance for Section E; a Quality Assurance Program to be performed by the Government; Contract Administration Data for Section G; Special Provision for Section H; Evaluation Factors for Award for Section M; and Examples of Bid Schedules.
